A fantastic day.Tour guide Bruno was lots of fun and informative.
St Emillion was everything we thought it would and more.we'd highly recommend this tour
Our tour was great, I learned a lot about the history of the port of Bordeaux and how the wine business was started. Catherine, our tour guide, was so passionate about the history of Bordeaux. She was an absolute delight and her energy was great! She explained things in English and French! We did the full day wine trip, which I highly recommend.
The tour was thoroughly enjoyable, the guide was friendly and the information was well presented and useful. Definetely very well priced and good value for money.
My husband and I truly enjoyed our Bordeaux wine trip to St. Emilion. The bus was ontime, the guide was knowledgeable and pleasant. The lunch was superb and the visit to the château was informative and enjoyable. In addition, we felt it was a great bargain, well worth the price.
We loved this trip, as it was a great way to get out into the vinyards, learn about the wine making, and to have some wine tasting. It was a great way to use the one full day we had in Bordeaux. Also make sure you do the full day and not just the half, as it allows a good look into the history of the region and includes a great lunch!
Our tour guide was lovely, really good value, our lunch that was included in the tour was one of the best meals we had in Bordeaux. haven't been disappointed with a Viator tour yet!
4.5! Excellent tour. Lunch was outstanding! Afternoon visits to 2 wineries were excellent as well. Morning could have included another museum or landmark.
Great overall tour, would highly recommend. Good value for money.
Very well organised. Excellent guide who spoke both English and French. Overall I thought it vey informative and enjoyable without being tedious towards the end!
Fantastic full day tour including the history of wine making in Bordeaux and trip to vinyard. The bonus was having lunch included at the 'Cheese & Wine' restaurant, where you pick your own cheese board from about 50 different cheeses!! I would recommend this to everyone visiting Bordeaux
Day trip including museum tour, lunch and trip to St Emillon vineyards was excellent value and enjoyable. Guides were well informed and entertaining. Perhaps there was a little bit too much walking in the morning which may not be suitable for elderly people. Aside from that, assez bien!
In general an excellent day out a worthwhile trip, and very good value for money especially considering the lunchtime meal. My only criticism I've seen this mentioned in other reviews was that the tour was conducted in both French and English. This means quite a lot of standing around. Not so bad in the afternooons at the Chateaux, as we could wander about during the French explanations, but the morning museum trip passed very slowly... Would have been nice to split the groups. Our morning consisted of a visit to the wine museum, followed by a walking tour of the Wine Merchant district. An excellent lunch was provided at a Fromagerie if you are a cheeseoholic you should probably seek professional help after devouring their cheese cave if you are fromageophobic like my girlfriend, they still do a decent main course and dessert. After lunch, we joined up with the half-day tour, so the number of people doubled. The chateaux visits are almost luck-of-the-draw. The first one pretty as it was we spent most of our time in a large shed. The second chateau, in contrast, was magnificent. Summary - Plenty of wine tasting I believe we sampled 6 - Opportunity for shopping at each stop - Learn about the wine making process and the region - Friendly tour guide, and helpful chateaux guides
This was much more than a wine tour going from cellar door to cellar door. It added history and understanding to what Bordeaux wines are and where they came from.
Fantastic day, excellent value for money, the cheese restaurant was brilliant and the cheeses were out of this world. All was very interesting and informative. Learned a lot. Definitely recommended.
Really well organized tour of Bordeaux and the wine region which I strongly recommend to those interested.
The tour was very nice, but the guide made it exceptional with his culture, passion and competence. The bus was a bit old, and it was a bit too hot inside.
Great tour guide, the lunch was fantasic, very good value for money. We enjoyed the coach trip out to the two chateaux but there could have been a bit more wine tasting!
Great tour, would have been nice to have seen more than one winery
This tour was good and visited some lovely places. The wine museum was very interesting, the lunch at the cheese place was delicious, St Emilion was extremely beautiful and the Chateaux we visited was informative.
There is a lot of walking, which I really enjoyed as it allows you to take a lot in, but some people in my group were not quite prepared for it.
The Chateaux only has a few wines, which is fine, but none of them were particularly to my taste. Had I known there would be such a small selection I would have bought some wine at St Emilion to take back.
My favourite parts were the yummy lunch (make sure you like cheese...which I certainly do!) and walking around gorgeous St Emilion.
My only real complaint is that although it says there is commentary in English I found there was very little. Most of it was long explainations in French with a few brief points in English. But I guess thst was also due to most of the guests speaking French. However, the guide was lovely and when she realised us English-speaking folk were missing out she did her best to catch us up on the information.
All in all it was a good day and I'm glad I did it. Also, very good value for the price.
Wonderful tour guide. Fabulous lunch. The town of st Emillion was fascinating.
Great tour. The guide was very knoweledagble about every thing wine in Bordeaux, plus full of interesting bits of other information. Lunch was excellent as well. The tour around the winery was interesting, but must be a fan of red wine for the tasting. White wine not included.
